Hollister trio Conserve strip down their sound in "Puzzle Dust" EP

The newest EP, Puzzle Dust, from Hollister-based trio Conserve takes the band in a completely new direction from their debut self-titled album. In their sophomore release, they completely strip down their sound and rely solely on acoustic guitar and vocals—whereas Conserve is heavily punk and garage influenced. This isn’t a surprising move for a band that is determined to escape the confines of genre, and they do it well, bringing a distinctly grunge sensibility to singer-songwriter tracks. Catch their next show at The Colony on April 29th. - Lilly Milman

Listen to our favorite track “Inside Looking Out” below.

New Track: "After the Drive-In" - Great Weights

Great Weights' self-titled EP drops on April 13 via Bunny Cat Records. “After the Drive-In” instantly accelerates as the instrumentation blitzes and then broods, meeting the emotional intensity displayed in the self-aware lyricism.  The song acknowledges the necessity of change, and it unapologetically takes back ownership of one’s actions. You can find Great Weight performing next at their record release show on Friday, April 13 at West Philly's The Mothership, where they'll be supported by Tact, Ronnie Vega, and Cage Flight.

Out From The Shadows Fest accompanied by new Songs From Under the Floorboard compilation

Dave Cantrell knows what's good when it comes to post-punk. As Portland's resident cognoscente of dark sounds, Cantrell has shared his knowledge regarding the peak of the genre's original years, from 1977 to 1983, as well as on present-day synthwave, darkwave and post-punk through his leading source of a radio show, Songs From Under the Floorboard. This weekly space has been turned into a compilation album, and it's coming out right in time to pair with the fourth year of Cantrell's curated festival Out From the Shadows.

Out on a split between local labels Accident Prone and Green Noise Records, the Songs From Under the Floorboard comp highlights just a few of the amazing artists Cantrell has discovered so far from around the globe, including Spain and Germany. The tracks on the compilation are rare and previously unreleased, the proceeds from what hopefully will be the first of many being donated to Planned Parenthood. As far as local representation is concerned, trio Vice Device are the only Portlanders on this volume of the comp, but there are quite a few named on the Out From the Shadows' bill.

Ritual Veil has been blowing up the scene lately and is expected to take the stage, along with the anarco-death rock of Over and the punk wave sounds of Arctic Flowers. Vibrissae's shoegazey synth sounds, some electro-industrial feels from Die Robot and some classic, gritty post-punk from Deathcharge

Out From the Shadows IV starts tomorrow. To purchase tickets and find more information on individual day's sets, view the Facebook event page. Songs From Under the Floorboard Vol. 1 drops on 4.06, but stream the compilation in full below.





Paul Cherry

Paul Cherry released his debut LP, Flavour, last week via Chicago’s Feeltrip Records. Cherry has transformed himself from a lo-fi garage rocker into a master dream pop. Below is the video for LP’s first single “Like Yesterday” and the album’s second single, “Your Letter”.

Paul Cherry will be touring the country this Spring and will be back in Chicago for Pitchfork Music Festival on July 21st.





The Tang - "I'll Try Harder Next Time" EP

Interesting lo-fi pop group The Tang have a very unique thing goin’ on. It sounds like 60’s pop drenched in shoegaze. Their latest EP “I’ll Try Harder Next Time” opens with a jangly, fun tune called “Deep Space Nine” which sort of takes you on a journey through space…but only if space had sunny afternoons with beautiful green grass. Maybe it does…I have never been there. If you’re into any of the psych influenced tunes that are popular these days then have some Tang. – Kris Gies
